Low Carb Peppermint White Mocha
Peppermint flavor is very popular around the holidays. Many of the big coffeehouses add it to their holiday drinks. Although many of the popular coffee shops load tons of sugar in their speciality coffees. Luckily, it’s really easy to recreate your favorite coffee drinks at home, including the peppermint white mocha.
Making a keto peppermint white mocha is as easy as making the very simple white mocha base for the coffee. Then adding a splash of peppermint extract. Now you can enjoy a holiday coffee drink in the mornings while you are out Christmas shopping or on Christmas morning as you watch your kids tear into presents.
Low Carb White Chocolate
To make a low carb white mocha, you will need keto approved white chocolate. You could make your own but that is a pain. Instead, I use a store bought white chocolate chip. ChocZero makes sugar free white chocolate chips. They melt easily and tastes exactly like white chocolate made with sugar. Their chocolate chips are sweetened with monk fruit and contain no sugar alcohols. You can save 10% off your order when you use my link above.
Milk Options for Making Mochas
In this recipe, I like to use a combination of heavy cream and macadamia nut milk; however, there are many different milk options you can use when making a low carb white mocha mix. This recipe is customizable so you can add all heavy cream or all a nut milk or a different nut milk. You could even use half and half (although it is higher in carbohydrates). The nut milk I prefer is macadamia nut milk. It is creamy and is one of the better tasting nut milks that I have tried. You can use other nut milks if you prefer. I have listed some options for you.
Other Nut Milk options:
- almond milk
- cashew milk
- pili nut milk
- hemp milk
Frothy Keto Mochas
To make a keto peppermint white mocha that tastes just like a coffeehouse made it, you should get your mocha frothy. To achieve a frothy mocha, mix the white chocolate base in a milk frother or a blender. This will get your creamy mocha, foamy and frothy - which is my favorite part! I prefer to use a milk frother but if I am making a big batch, I use my BlendTec Blender.
Store White Mocha Mixture
If you see yourself making peppermint white mochas throughout the week, you can make a big batch of keto white mocha mix ahead of time and use it throughout the week. Store it in an air-tight container or mason jar and keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
